Pole to pole 

I don’t mean the collection of letters from Pope John Paul II to Rula Lenska. I heard from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade here in about the Bruce Robinson case, stating:

Thanks for your email, which has been forwarded to me for reply. The embassy in Warsaw has had, and continues to have, regular contact with Polish authorities regarding Mr Robinson’s case, including on the conditions of his detention. The details of these contacts are confidential to Mr Robinson and his family.

   I wish these TV networks would follow up on stories that they start, so we don’t keep on about it. But I do stand by my solution. I’ll suggest it back to the communications’ manager, who replied to me.

Update, Thursday, 12.02 a.m. GMT: I have written to Rawdon Christie, the journalist who did the original Close-Up story, to see if I can reach the Robinsons in , and to see if they would welcome my involvement. If the Foreign Minister-outside-Cabinet is labelled by Mr Robinson as ‘incompetent’, and I am not totally satisfied with the above MFAT response, then I may well see if I can get further. But only if they would welcome it: I have no wish to jeopardize Bruce’s well-being or the privileges apparently granted him as a result of earlier MFAT intervention.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
